I have over 15 years experience in the children, youth and family sector related to out-of-home care, residential care, leaving care, youth diversion, family services, early childhood development and statutory Child Protection services within Victoria and the NT. Having lived and worked in remote NT for 6 months, I have developed a greater understanding and appreciation of the diversity of cultural and mental health challenges community groups (regional and remote) can face. I have direct counseling and health promotion experience with first responder (NTPFES) employees (and immediate family and children), as well as understanding the challenges their families can be faced with on a day-to-day level and the long-term pressures within a mental health and wellbeing context.
Not only am I a facilitator of SMHFA 12hr, 4hr Standard Refresher and 4hr NSSI courses, I am a trained facilitator in a number of well-known parenting programs - ABCD Parenting Young Adolescents, Tuning into Kids, Tuning into Teens and Bringing Baby Home.
